1955 Cadillac

While no major appearance changes were seen on Cadillacs this year, a number of refinements were apparent.

Cadillac horsepower seemed to climb right along with sales. For 1955 it reached 250 standard via higher compression (9.0:1) and improved manifolding; Eldorado now boasted 270 bhp courtesy of dual four-barrel carburetors, optional for other models.
